Podcast - Mike Reilly Recalls Crew Mate Eric Cooper

We continue the celebration of MLB umpire Eric Cooper's life in a Plate Meeting Podcast episode with one of the umpires who perhaps knew him best: his long-time crew chief, Mike Reilly.

Mike was there for Cooper's first career MLB game in 1996, and Eric was there for Reilly's final career MLB game in 2010.

The two Iowa-born umpires shared a bond that kept them on the same crew for the better part of the 2000s—maybe it was their shared fandom for Notre Dame or simply being from the same region. Mike talks about the good times with Coop on the show.
